I've installed the Publishing Service on my Sitecore 9.0 Update-2 environment with dedicated CM und CD server.

The publishing process seems to work. So when I publish an item on my CM I can look into the web database and the published content is there.

But on my CD I am not getting the changes directly only after restarting the Application.

I've added the following files to the bin on my CD and CM

  • Sitecore.Framework.Conditions.dll
  • Sitecore.Publishing.Service.Abstractions.dll
  • Sitecore.Publishing.Service.Delivery.dll
  • Sitecore.Publishing.Service.dll

and I've added this config to /Modules/PublishingService

  • Sitecore.Publishing.Service.Delivery.config

same content on CD and CM:

    <configuration xmlns:patch="http://www.sitecore.net/xmlconfig/" xmlns:role="http://www.sitecore.net/xmlconfig/role/">
        <sitecore role:require="Standalone or ContentDelivery or ContentManagement">
                <hook type="Sitecore.Publishing.Service.Delivery.PublishTargetEventsHook, Sitecore.Publishing.Service.Delivery" />

                <event name="publishingservice:searchindex:rebuild">
                    <handler type="Sitecore.Publishing.Service.Delivery.TargetSearchIndexRebuildHandler, Sitecore.Publishing.Service.Delivery" method="RebuildTargetSearchIndex">
                        <IndexNames hint="list:AddIndex">

                <event name="publishingservice:cache:clear">
                    <handler type="Sitecore.Publishing.Service.Delivery.TargetDataCacheClearHandler, Sitecore.Publishing.Service.Delivery" method="ClearTargetDataCaches" />

I don't know If I am missing some configuration.

  • I've read the post but doesn't help me :-/ Jul 25, 2019 at 17:57
  • Which version of publishing service are you using ? Jul 25, 2019 at 19:10
  • Version 3.1.3 i am using Jul 25, 2019 at 19:11
  • Have you disabled the publishingservice:searchindex:rebuild event on the CD (assuming it is not responsible for indexing) as per the manual?

The problem was that I have some more sites then just the default website. So I need to add the following code snipped to my configs on the CD for example inside the Sitecore.Publishing.Service.Delivery.config

 <event name="publish:end:remote">
            <handler type="Sitecore.Publishing.HtmlCacheClearer, Sitecore.Kernel" method="ClearCache">
                <sites hint="list">
                    <site name="MySite1-AT">MySite1-AT</site>
                    <site name="MySite1-DE">MySite1-DE</site>

and then also the cache was reseted on my CD

    This would indicate that your cache clearing was not set up correctly before you installed the Publishing Service

  • @sitecorium what you mean with cache clearing setup? Never heared before. Jul 29, 2019 at 18:14
  • I think @sitecorium means this issue existed regardless of using the Sitecore Publishing Service. Apr 26, 2020 at 14:18
  • I had the same experience. It appears that the default Sitecore setup only adds "website" to the list. In a multi-site setup this was the key to configuring the separate sites for caching. Also enable the cacheHtml="true" in the main site config for each site. Jan 25, 2021 at 19:59
